Katrina and Matt Katsarelis, Publishers
MOVING FROM PRINT TO DIGITAL
Matt and Katrina transitioned Katy Magazine from print to digital in 2017 following industry leaders in magazine publishing. The company was poised for digital success having already established a large following on social media along with thousands of loyal readers. The timing was perfect for Katy Magazine because readers were all on their devices and print was becoming obsolete.
Since moving to digital, Katy Magazine was able to more than quadruple their readership, in line with Katy’s growing population. Katy Magazine is now able to provide timely, up-to-the minute feature stories and news items that readers can access and share anytime from their mobile devices. Over the years, the publishers have won over 195 local and national awards including the Katy Area Chamber Business of the Year.
ABOUT KATY MAGAZINE
Local residents Katrina and Matt Katsarelis started Katy Magazine in 2003 when they realized there was very little media in the area. Their dream was to create a hometown magazine that would showcase the best things about living in Katy and make their community proud.
Prior to starting the magazine, Katrina worked as a freelance writer for parenting, community, and news publications. Her full-time career was working in corporate marketing and advertising departments for small and large companies. Matt worked previously as an engineer for Lockheed Martin at Johnson Space Center. Matt and Katrina are hands-on publishers who enjoy helping other business owners grow their companies the same way they grew Katy Magazine.
They are extremely involved in the community and have served on many non-profit boards in the Katy area. Matt and Katrina live in Cinco Ranch and have two grown children.
